We come today to one of the clearest promises in the New Testament regarding salvation, the answer to a Christian’s most critical question; “How can I know that I am truly saved?”

Paul had just contrasted the righteousness of the Law with the righteousness of faith, and had, using even the words of Moses, shown that the word of faith is in our hearts and our mouths.Image may contain: sky, tree, cloud, snow, outdoor and natureAnd now comes the promise: “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God; and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, ‘Anyone who trusts in Him will never be disgraced.'” Romans 10:9-11 NLT

This promise of God, like all other promises of God, is backed by the Name and Reputation, the Power and Authority, the Love and Mercy of God. To put it bluntly, there is no possibility of His failing to keep His Promise. And He’s supplied everything we need for our part; “The word of faith,” says Paul, “is very near to you– in your heart and in your mouth.” His promise is not “too good to be true”; in fact, it’s too good not to be true, for it springs from God Himself, He Who can never lie. Take Him at His promise; trust Him with all that you are and have today; tell Jesus Christ that He is your Lord, and thank Him for Who He is and what He has done for you. You will never be disgraced.
